BTU wins seventh gold medal

Posted: Wednesday 1st June 2016

Water industry specialist Barhale Trant Utilities (BTU) has been awarded its seventh consecutive annual gold medal by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

BTU, headquartered in Havant, near Portsmouth, employs more than 200 people and works in partnership with Southern Water across Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Sussex and Kent.

There are also offices in Shoreham Road, Henfield, West Sussex, and Capstone Road, Chatham, Kent.

A joint venture launched in 2009 by infrastructure specialists Barhale and Trant Engineering, BTU delivers improvements for the utility, which serves 4.5 million people through 94 water supply works, 368 wastewater treatment works and extensive water and wastewater networks.

The commendation came in the diamond anniversary of the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards and celebrates 60 years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.

Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants' overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Glen Carlin, BTU, Head of Safety, Health, Environment and Quality, said: "This is BTU's seventh consecutive gold award in seven years and RoSPA's commendation underlines our genuinely deep commitment to safety in everything we do."

Julia Small, RoSPA's head of awards and events, said: "To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations."

She added: 'This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.'

Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including engineering, construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, manufacturing and education.

Headline sponsors of the RoSPA Awards 2016 is NEBOSH - the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health - for the 11th consecutive year.
